Do you have the right tools to promote successful transition? Transition to adulthood requires multifaceted advanced planning. Jump-Start Their Future! enriches your toolkit by adding multiple tools to assess and address different facets of transition: post-secondary education, work, independent living, school participation, community engagement, and interests & motivations.

Jump-Start Their Futures! will focus on post-secondary transition: from school to community, from student to citizen. Current evidence in post-secondary transition will be presented to inform OT & PT practice: predictors for successful transition, the role of related services in transition planning, data-based decision-making, collaborative interventions, and resources for work skills, independent living, and continued education. This course will provide and discuss tools & resources for assessment, equipment, environmental factors, interventions, communication with team members, and more.

Well-planned transitions not only facilitate uninterrupted progress, but also result in students who are prepared for life after school. This requires collaborative data planning, collection, analysis, and application. We will explore how student data gathered via various tools should shape post-secondary transition, our interventions, and service delivery for students preparing for adult life. Establishment of meaningful, measurable transition goals will also be discussed. Our time together will be filled with small group discussions and activities to apply information immediately.

  1. Do you ever have your trainings available online? I’m not able to physically make it to these but would LOVE to be able to somehow access and learn some of these great topics!!!!

    1. Hi, Genny! Due to the interactive nature of our courses, they are hard to deliver online. We will explore this in the future to see how we can make learning online work effectively. Follow https://www.facebook.com/applyebp/ or subscribe on this website so you’ll hear when this happens.
      In the meantime, where are you located? Perhaps we can bring the course closer to you if there’s enough interest. Thanks!
